Made this one for my mom for Christmas. Red oak with 2 poplar accents. Pic is after one soaking of mineral oil. 30 degree chamfer on bottom edge to easily pick it up.

Nice feature with the 30 degree bevel. Attractive and you can pick it up along any edge. Nice one!

Nice work, Mom will love it. I think I need to barrow that edge idea. Looks good. I have used a chamfer before but on the top edge. I like it on the bottom Well done , Thx for sharing.

Loving the bevel on the bottom. Very clever. I’m going to be making a board this weekend for a co-worker who is retiring. I think I shall steal this idea.

Very simple and therefore elegant design. Me likee.

Thanks for all the kind words. I wanted a way to keep one side up. The bottom side revealed a weird dark streak on one of the poplar skants. I was going to rout finger grips like my last few but my router was not set up. This was a lot quicker and I like it a lot more. No router burn marks to worry about and no small crevasses to sand. Just set my fence to 3/4” smaller than the width and length, blade at 30, and cut it out. Then I heard my router bits thanking me ;)

Dimensions are 1-5/8” thick, 12-1/4” wide, and 15-1/2” long by the way.
